Middle Eastern Fish Tacos


Mint, garlic, yogurt, lemon, on crunchy fish with charred bread. Oh yeah. Love this, And by making it at home it's still warm when you eat it.


This started off as a regular fish taco, but I quickly realized I was subbing out everything except the fish. Upon tasting it, it soon became one of my favorite foods.

it's basically breaded fish, a garlic-y spicy strained yogurt mix, a cabbage bell pepper mix tossed with lemon mint garlic dressing all on a charred pita.

Ok there is a major cheat here, frozen breaded tilapia. I'm just never going to be the person that fries much, and frying fish, I leave that up to others,



So it starts off with charred pita bread. I literally place it directly on an electric burner. This is something my grandfather used to do when heating bread. Ok, so I suppose you could potentially burn the house down, but it's not easy to get these marks without a little risk.



Place slices of cooked breaded fish on top. 


 Top with strained yogurt mixture.


Top with cabbage mixture.


 Isn't it pretty?



You can double decker it with another layer of fish.

Strained yogurt mix

2 tbsp strained yogurt (this can be bought or made)
juice of half a lemon
1/2 tsp cayenne or to taste
1 clove crush garlic

Mix all ingredients, taste and adjust, I like to keep it on the spicy side.

Cabbage mix

1/3 small head of cabbage sliced
1/2 yellow pepper
1 clove garlic crushed
2 tsp mint
juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salr

Mix and let sit out on the counter until cabbage is softened. This will keep and get better after a few hours, days.
